This afternoon I watched a Coopers Gawk devour a red bellied woodpecker outside my den window.

After several minutes it flew across the water in our direction, into a deciduous tree. The dry foliage on that tree provided perfect camouflage for the bird's coloring and markings. Had it not resumed singing, we might never have seen it. As it was, its gold-toned chest, facing the sun, finally gave away its perch, near the top and center of the tree.
